On behalf of our Team, we would like to wish you a very nice holiday season. It is our wish that 2020 brings all of us many new business opportunities, and a lot of professional growth, health, and happiness. For the Eurovent Association and its Chapter Eurovent Middle East, this year was marked with many important developments, of which we would like to share a few. The Eurovent review 2019 can be downloaded via this link.
The Eurovent Association has released the fourth edition of the widely-applied Eurovent Recommendation 4/21 – ‘Energy Efficiency Evaluation of air filters for general ventilation purposes’. The updated guidelines set out a new method for the determination of the annual energy consumption for filters operating at an airflow rate other than nominal.
On a monthly basis, the Eurovent Team compiles a global overview of the latest developments concerning new standardisation activities and technical regulations of relevance for the HVACR industry. Our Notifications allow members to be prepared for developments that can have an impact on them and their products.
The teams of Eurovent and PRODBIM have prepared an article for members on recent developments in Building Information Modelling (BIM) CEN TC442 standardisation activities and construction product information digitisation. PRODBIM, a subsidiary of Eurovent Services Company, is participating to CEN TC442 & BuildingSMART working groups, and is compiling a summary of the CEN TC 442 as well as ISO TC 59 SC13 works on BIM standardisation.
With the introduction of the ‘Copilot Certificate’ for building performance, Eurovent, REHVA and synavision set a new European standard for the construction industry. The signing of the agreement on 11 October paved the way for the launch of the world's first building and facility certificate. Builders use the certificate to ensure that their buildings undergo effective quality management.
From 2 to 5 October 2019, the Eurovent Association, Eurovent Middle East, and Eurovent Certita Certification are going to be at ISK-SODEX 2019 – one of the largest international exhibitions for HVACR, Pumps, Valves, Fittings, Water Treatment, and Insulation. Eurovent will be at your disposal for requests concerning legislation, standardisation, certification, and general industry developments.

Representatives of ISKID (Turkey’s Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Manufacturers’ Association) and Eurovent signed an agreement to jointly organise the 2020 EUROVENTSUMMIT. They announced that the next edition of Europe’s major gathering for Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, and Food Cold Chain Technologies will take place in Antalya, Turkey, from 22 to 25 September 2020.
The JTC study on repairability of initially three consumer products; laptops, vacuum cleaners, and washing machines, is deemed enough to support continuation along these lines and would be complemented with investigations into durability, upgradability, recycling, and other aspects of the circular economy. In first instance, consumer products (for example smart phones) would be further investigated. However, with time these developments are likely to extend to other products. Industry should timely take note of the standards that are developed to deal with repairability.
